Dr. Francisco Jacome is a Gold-Star weight loss surgeon and health advocate! His bedside manner is exemplary, and we have been blessed to work with him. He operated on my dad last fall at Fairview Park Hospital in Dublin...under very dire circumstances. I honestly thought we’d begin preparing for my father’s death. But with Dr. Jacomé’s skills, confidence and hard work — and some serious divine intervention — Dad pulled through miraculously! The caring and compassionate manner with which Jacomé approached my father’s situation will never be forgotten by our family. When Dad returned for his second follow up with the doctor, he said to Daddy, “You are my miracle!” Well, I say to Dr. Jacomé, YOU are ours! You saved my dad’s life, and I pray the blessing returns to you a hundred fold. Gracias! Muchas, muchas gracias por ser las manos de Dios!
Being a gastric bypass patient, I have to say that the success of this process is only insured by the thought and genuine care put in from the leaders at Live Healthy MD. From scheduling appointments, psychology, nutrition, exercise, medical expectations, medical care to the actual best doctor (Francisco Jacome), I am in the best hands possible. I can't thank this staff enough! I am already living the best life I have had since my 20's. This second half of my life will be grand thanks to Dr. Francisco Jacome.
Dr. Jacome is amazing, compassionate and dedicated to getting you healthy. My husband and I were under the care of Dr. Jacome, Dr. Connie Stapleton and Morgan. Truly wonderful team, who created a plan that worked for us as individuals and as a couple trying to meet our goals of becoming healthier. Goals achieved!! Thank you so much for your dedication and commitment to help people. It's been an amazing journey for us and we couldn't have done it without Dr. Jacome and his team! I highly recommend this program as it compares to no other. Many thanks!
I love Dr Jacome! He is an awesome doctor who takes the time to listen to me. He explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. All the staff is very polite and eager to help in anyway possible

I love Dr Jacome and his staff! They truly care about your health and well being. They are always there when you need them. Dr. Jacome did my gallbladder removal in 2016. And did my gastric bypass in 2019. I couldn't have chosen a better doctor!
Dr. Jacome and his team are some of the nicest, most patient people I've ever known. They saved my life! I would recommend them to anyone and consider them family and friends. Five stars all the way!
Dr. Jacome is fantastic! He changed my life, and I will be forever grateful! From the first time I went to see him, I knew I was going to be taken care of. From start to finish of the process of getting information, learning about bariatric surgery to getting approved was easy! They offer so much support and care, its truly something you don't see these days with doctors. They truly do care! Thank you Dr. Jacome for helping me love myself again!!!
The doctors and staff of Live Healthy MD in Dublin (and Augusta) are outstanding! Dr. Jacome is so kind and caring! He really wants to give you your quality of life back! I struggled after my surgery and he was so patient with me. Morgan is amazing! Always helpful when I ask tons of questions. I highly recommend!
I began my journey with this AMAZING group in February 2018. The entire team stayed by my side during every step to get approval for my gastric bypass. I absolutely love that we (patients) have access to support at all times with a variety of ways to reach out. I have lost over 100 pounds, am off all meds, and can finally live my life—healthy and active! Thank you Dr. Jacome, Chelsea, Morgan, and the rest of the team! You gave me my life back!
